Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

Yesterday morning I decided it was time to go back to Bunn’s Creek for my walk. It has been about a month since I’ve been there. My first sighting was a beautiful Belted Kindfisher. He was on the opposite side of the creek and he tested my camera’s zoom ability. Amazingly enough, I got a… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

The walk back to the car along the 2 trails was a nice walk again, but the birds and critters kept themselves hidden. I then drove over to the West Beach Parking lot and began walking the trail that goes around the lakes. This time, I walked the beach area first and then up and… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

After returning to my car, I headed on towards the West Beach to wander a bit along the beaches. Now that the snow is pretty much gone, I found out that there are paved walkways everywhere. If those walkways had been plowed, it would have been very easy to have found my way back to… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

It has been over a month since my last slippery visit to the trails at Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. The trails weren’t very good with a lot of ice then, but they are much better now. Some spots are very wet and muddy though and some of the recent snow is still evident, but I… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Geese, Ducks and More

It was such a beautiful morning yesterday, so I headed back to Fort Whyte Alive to walk after the snow had melted. The wind died down, the sky was blue and the temperature was back above 0C. Actually, it was about 10C and absolutely perfect for walking. Happy Easter!

Return to the Bird’s Hill Park Lakes & Trails

Just like my first walk after breaking my shoulder was back to the trails at Fort Whyte Alive where I fell & broke it, my first walk back in Bird’s Hill just had to be to the area where I was lost for a few hours. This time I decided to reverse the walk by… Continue reading Return to the Bird’s Hill Park Lakes & Trails

Almost Spring at Bunn’s Creek

March is the month that can go either way around here. We have had blizzards some years and we have had an early spring other years. This year is looking more like it will be an early spring. It can still go the other way though, so I’ll just enjoy what we have right now.… Continue reading Almost Spring at Bunn’s Creek

Fort Whyte Alive on a Beautiful Sunny Day

After yesterday’s dismal looking sun, I wasn’t going to waste today’s beautiful sun, so I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. The temperature was a lovely -7C. This is the sun we normally see a lot of in Sunny Manitoba. The Chickadees were not very co-operative today, but I managed a couple… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive on a Beautiful Sunny Day

A Return Visit to Bunn’s Creek Trail

After my first trip to Bunn’s Creek Trail, I checked a map to see where the creek ends so I can walk from there back to the park. It turns out that it ends when it enters the Red River and there is a parking lot there – so that is where I headed this… Continue reading A Return Visit to Bunn’s Creek Trail

Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Until my last move, I have always lived east of Assiniboine Park and always entered from the east. Since I moved west of the park a couple of months ago, I found out that there is a large western side of the park with trails. I have now been entering the west side and driving… Continue reading Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park
